A lesson plan and supportive materials for an exercise in reading comprehension and cooperative writing are presented. The exercise is based on a story entitled "Testimony," in which a writer expresses feelings about a boxing match. The lesson plan outlines procedures for presentation of the exercise to the class, for the cooperative teams to explore the story using a series of worksheets, and for conclusion and followup of the exercise. Worksheets include vocabulary categorization exercises, an activity analyzing the information presented in sentences, an exercise in putting events into sequence, analysis of fight details, an active-passive voice exercise, and an analysis of the sides taken by witnesses to the event. The story is appended. (MSE)
